Small plane crash kills 3 in Idaho

Authorities say a private plane has crashed at an Idaho landing strip near the community of Grace, killing all three men aboard.

The Caribou County sheriff's office said the plane went down late Monday afternoon.

Sheriff Ric Anderson did not immediately identify the victims pending notification of relatives.

The plane's origin and destination were not immediately available.

Witnesses told KIFI the landing strip in the southeast region of the state is used by a crop-dusting company and it's uncommon for private planes to land there.

The crash is being investigated by the sheriff's office and the National Transportation Safety Board.
